Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Limestone with clay
Site : Selected plots of vineyards in Côte de Beaune villages, mostly Pernand-Vergelesses, Auxey-Duresses and Ladoix.
The Vintage 2018 : After a rainy winter, a heat wave in April followed by a cold period in May, the weather settled down in Burgundy with warm temperatures in June. Summer was warm and dry with a few heat waves. The harvest started in the last days of August with an excellent maturity of the grapes. The red wines are crunchy, deep and dense with an outstanding aromatic complexity.
Tasting : Bright ruby colour. Aromas of ripe cherries and raspberries mixed with liquorice and vanilla. Complex and well-balanced. Very pure fruit. Well crafted tannins. Long and spicy aftertaste.
Food pairing : To be enjoyed with warm starters, white meat, matured cheeses.
